Life Force

Roslyn DeBoer

Hand woven, machine-couching of yarns & ribbons also function as quilting rows. Water is vital to all life-forms. Here a variety of fabrics in a wide range of blues evoke an underwater world teeming with unseen life. Apparent calm on the surface hints at mystery, movement and activity down deep.

Fabric manipulation techniques including couching, gathering, pleating, shrinking, cording & wrapping strips. Hand & machine stitching. I love taking flat pieces of fabric & manipulating them in as many different ways as I can think of to create depth & texture in my nature-inspired art work.

Pin weaving, couching, hand-gathering. Water is a fascinating subject – the changing colors, shapes & moods are a continuous source of inspiration. This set shows the scene from the same spot at opposite times of the day.

Panorama

Couching, tucks, hand-gathering, twisted strips, pleating, machine stitching, “bubbling”, cording. The panoramic shape of the panels portrays the vastness of the landscape in a small scale format. Stacking 3 identical shapes emphasizes this idea.
